Welcome to the Live and Learn in Ireland series, which seeks to help International students become familiar with studying and living in Ireland. The Live and Learn in Ireland project, which is funded by the National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning (NFTL), has produced a number interactive multimedia units under the headings:
Ireland has long been referred to as the ‘Land of Saints and Scholar’s and can boast an academic and literary tradition going back many centuries. With over 40% of the 25-64 years adult population educated to third level and 75% of school leavers going onto higher or further education or training the Irish certainly hold education in high regard.
For such a small country, Ireland can boast a list of Nobel Prize winners such as Seán McBride, WB Yeats, George Bernard Shaw, Ernest Walton, Seamus Heaney and Samuel Beckett. From Trinity College Dublin, dating back to 1492, through to our 19th and 20th century Universities to the more recent Institutes of Technology, the Irish higher education sector offer a varied and interesting range of courses and settings in one of the world’s most picturesque and culturally rich countries.
But Ireland offers much more than that. It is an exciting and vibrant country that cherishes the bests of its past while adopting an outward and innovative approach to life and business.
